About the lecture
Lecture will be delivered in English with simultaneous translation into Russian
The transition towards a circular economy will evolve, no doubt about that. Such concepts as "systems innovation" will take generations, and the key question is how to facilitate faster development. One of the answers is "transition management", the art of creating interventions and conditions for change. Disruptors and start-ups operate mainly in the "margins" of the economy. How can these initiatives be fostered and facilitated in growth towards the "mainstream"?

In this lecture, Douwe Jan Joustra, having a long experience in transition management in the Netherlands, shares his insights on the acceleration of change towards the circular economy.
